Overview: Based on the multimillion selling Onimusha franchise, Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams is nothing less than epic. This time you fight as a young warrior named Soki, and your objective is to defeat the new warlord who is trying to gain complete domination.

Gameplay: Let me start off by saying you don’t have to have any prior knowledge of the other releases in the Onimusha franchise. All you need to know is Dawn of Dreams begins fifteen years after the original trilogy. This time around you must defeat a different warlord who has similar objectives. It might sound like a regurgitated plot, but actually Dawn of Dreams is arguably the best release thus far. The updated camera angles and new characters make this game feel fresh. The battles are movie worthy, and the overall look is beautiful.

Graphics: As chewy as chicken teriyaki!

Sound: Dark and dramatic

Players: 1—2 (Co-Op)

Overall rating: 9 (out of 10)
